Incidental mutations (data from APF )
 
Loss of function results in adult-onset obesity and reproductive defects, including hypogonadism, due to disruption of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. Mutant male mice are sterile, whereas female mice show variable fertility dependent on the presence or absence of male mice.
